    Current 1RM's - Bench 264lbs (Target 308lbs)/Squat 396lbs (Target 352lbs)/
    Deadlift 429lbs (Target 440lbs)
    BIG 3 TOTAL at 220lbs (28% BF) = 1089lbs

    couldn't figure out if I wanted to pull sumo or Conventional for the heavy sets today.....I'm pretty sure I could have pulled 445x5 if I had warmed up better with just sumo...the 415 off deficit was the easiest set and it was only because I was finally warmed up
